Milk Paint Activity!

Here is a really fun little activity to do with your kids that requires things that you probably already have on hand at home. We had some milk that was past it’s expiration date and I thought there had to be something I could do with it that didn’t involve consuming it lol. And here it is! Milk paint! Here’s what you’ll need:

Milk (any kind will do however whole works best)
Dish soap
food coloring
plate or dish with a lip on it

Pour the milk in the dish and then add drops of food coloring to it.

Then dip the toothpick in the dish soap and give it to your kids to dip in the colors. When it comes in contact with the colors the dish soap on the tip of the toothpick causes the food colors to repel creating fun swirls and designs!

We got some really cool designs using different colors.

We did this four times and each time used different color combos. The kids (ages 2 and 3) absolutely loved it and thought it was the coolest thing. I have to admit that I thought it was pretty cool too!

It’s also the perfect way to put that old milk to use!
